    Elmhurst College offers a wide variety of free or low cost events on campus, including concerts, plays, sporting events and lectures. The town of Elmhurst IL has a movie theatre, a bowling alley, a fabulous library, a model railroader's club and a host of free events throughout the year. When you get tired of exploring the local business attractions, you can walk to the train and take it to downtown Chicago.

    There are some things to do around downtown Elmhurst, but the real treat is the 30-40 minute train ride into downtown Chicago. Elmhurst College really is in a great location!

    There is a room we call the Roost where they have another small cafeteria with food like burgers, wings, pizza, and tons of other stuff. Then there is another section for ping pong (can rent the stuff), pool (stuff to rent), x box (you can rent games and controllers), karaoke. Besides from that, downtown Elmhurst is 5 minutes away from walking so the movies, BWW, and other things are easy access. It's a blast.

    The down town Elmhurst area is full of excitement. You can walk to York theater for the movies. Buffalo Wild wings, Chipotle, Subway and a host of other restaurant are all within a couple of feet away from each other. If your feeling adventurous, you can ride the Metra to down town Chicago or go to the zoo.
